It’s time for another great list building tip. Today I want to talk about articles.
If you write helpful and informative articles on the topic of your product or service and submit them to article directories such as Ezine Articles they can be seen by hundreds if not thousands of people interested in what you have to say.
By doing this you will see a definite increase in the number of subscribers that you receive. Simply because you have given them helpful information in you article.
Just make sure that you include the URL of your sign up page in the resource or bio box so that they can click through to sign up to your list.
It’s time for another great tip. Let’s jump right in!
This works great if you sell a product or service. After your customer has paid and been directed to your download or thank you page, ask them if they would like to opt in to your list so that you can keep them informed of any future free upgrades to the product that they have bought.
If you sell a physical product that has to be shipped you can also include a note that asks them to visit your site and join your list. Make sure to give them a good incentive to join and you will get a great response.
Remember they have already purchased from you, so you know they are interested in what you have to offer.
Let’s talk video!
These days video is all over the web and you can use it to get more subscribers. There’s no doubt that publicizing free content like articles and ebooks can drive traffic to your website and increase your subscribers.
But have you ever thought about using video to do the same thing?
All you have to do is create a short video introducing yourself and your business. You can provide tips or a short tutorial. Try to provide some helpful information and point out all of the ways that you can help them if they visit your website and join your list.
Don’t worry of you aren’t ready to be a film star. You can create videos from slide show presentations or from screen capture software like Camtasia. You can get a free trial at: http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.asp
In your video make sure you point your viewers to a specific landing page (a squeeze page) with your sign up form on it. People will be eager to join your list because you’ve provided them with great information in a wildly popular format.
I hope you found that tip helpful and don’t forget if you have any questions let me know.
Today I want to share with you one way that you can entice people to join your list.
Design a sign up or squeeze page on your website and offer a free multi-day course or a series of helpful tips like this one, that can be delivered by auto responder.
Keep the messages relevant to your topic and encourage them to sign up by letting them know that the information is very useful and beneficial to them. Point out all of the ways that you can help them if they decide to join your list.
This works great because you will have multiple chances to present your sales message during the course. It is also a great way to increase the traffic to your website.
